    Ahh yes, everyone’s favorite misanthropist. Too much food production certainly could lead us to something much worse than starvation!!!! ?????

    And people still think that buffoon has some credibility.

    Time for climate-change deniers to have their opinions forcibly tattooed on their bodies.

    The tale of two Paul Ehrlichs.

    This Paul Ehrlich created the first synthetic antibiotic drug and coined the term chemotherapy.

    This Paul Ehrlich was a fiction writer who constructed disaster scenarios that never materialized yet which inexplicably led to the creation of a doomsday cult movement comprised of fear ridden psychotic followers in need of therapy.

    • Dave N says:

      What is worse is that he is still doing it, despite being continuously and spectacularly wrong, and people are still believing him. That’s the definition of insanity.

    • NikFromNYC says:

      The tale of two Normans:

      NORMAN PHILLIPS IS a theoretical meteorologist who pioneered the use of numerical methods for the prediction of weather and climate changes. His influential studies led to the first computer models of weather and climate, as well as to an understanding of the general circulation of the atmosphere, including the transports of heat and moisture that determine the Earth’s climate. His 1955 model is generally regarded as a ground-breaking device that helped to win scientific skepticism in reproducing the patterns of wind and pressure of the entire atmosphere within a computer model.

      Norman Borlaug led the introduction of these high-yielding varieties combined with modern agricultural production techniques to Mexico, Pakistan, and India. As a result, Mexico became a net exporter of wheat by 1963. Between 1965 and 1970, wheat yields nearly doubled in Pakistan and India, greatly improving the food security in those nations. These collective increases in yield have been labeled the Green Revolution, and Borlaug is often credited with saving over a billion people worldwide from starvation. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970 in recognition of his contributions to world peace through increasing food supply.

  4. Sparks says:

    The definition of insanity is more relaxed and less extreme than you might think, within context of course.

  5. What is peculiar in this case is that there is almost no way to spin Ehrlich’s words as “scenarios” or “what-ifs” or “science fiction”: “now that it is too late…”

    The only safe place for the likes of Ed Darrell will be in claiming old Paul was “misrepresented” by the usual ignoramus of a journalist.
